Old Mondoro

If you’re looking for the perfect gift for the elephant lover who has everything, this quintessential tented camp on the banks of the Zambezi is it. Surrounded by a forest of winterthorn trees, whose apple-ringed seed pods are to elephants what sugar is to a sweet-tooth. Old Mondoro draws quite the pachydermal crowd. With just five sophisticated chalets, you’re guaranteed peace and personal attention in spades. And an endless stream of island hopping elephants and hippos, comical baboon troupes and wild dog action for days. There are channels to be paddled down, day beds to be snoozed on, feast-laden dinner tables to seated around, and unforgettable memories to be made.


Stuff we love

Charming tented camp

  • The clink of an icy cold Mosi Lager as you float, somewhat fiercely, down the mighty Zambezi River.
  • Watching leopards stalk impala herds after dinner by the glow of an unobtrusive red spotlight.
  • Unceremoniously scrambling from your outdoor bathtub as a passing elephant drops by for a drink.
